Are we in the death throes of capitalism?


Author Grace Blakeley and economist Diego Zuluaga debate the state of capitalism and whether it's a failing system.
Are we in the death throes of capitalism?

An interesting take. Setting aside PR for now...

Duverger's Law assumes voters are somewhat rational, so it doesn't really apply directly in the real world. In my state we're not in a straight PV system, but voters act like they are, because they trust the propaganda.

Chinese people will not be intimidated by any threats


#US #interference #China #HK #politics #international
(People’s Daily) 07:45, December 02, 2019

"The U.S. has signed the so-called #Hong #Kong #Human #Rights and #Democracy #Act of 2019 into law recently regardless of the solemn representations and strong opposition from China.

The U.S. move has seriously interfered in the Hong Kong affairs and the #internal #affairs of China, and violated the #international #law and the basic norms governing international relations.

The Chinese government strongly opposes such barefaced #hegemony and the Chinese people will not be intimidated by any #threats. Any attempt to interfere in China’s internal affairs is doomed to fail".

Accusing a political #prisoner for fleeing is perverse.


#Assange is in #jail in #Uk for a #bail #violation. The detention for bail violations is a disgusting perversion, because to put a political refugee into prison for fleeing is perverse.

In addition, he is tortured in #prison so that doctors are worried about his life.

The public accepts that largely without #protest. Where should the next #whistleblower get his strength from to work for the common good?

Washington's hegemonic thuggery on Hong Kong only a mockery of human rights


"BEIJING, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Washington's signing on Wednesday of the so-called #Hong #Kong #Human #Rights and #Democracy #Act of 2019 into law is a naked hegemonic move that will only discredit itself and bring all Chinese people closer together.

sorry to say - but almost anything man builds has flaws - thus mankind desperately would need a scientific way of reforming #democracy or face disaster... can #Sanders do it? Hope so because #Trump thinks he can turn back time to the 1960s. Just as filesystems, a system prone to corruption and conspiracies (#SkullAndBones) enslaving instead of freeing people is a problem... life is precious in the universe.

If policymakers and voters really want to be “realistic,” then it is essential to appreciate the full #future costs of the path on which they are currently set and to acknowledge the dangerously perverse incentives for escalating #violence, extortion, and authoritarian rule that it entrenches.
Progressive forces must act together on both sides of the border to reframe the #debate.
